BUDAPEST: A NEW TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION ADOPTED FOR UNDERGROUND RAILWAY STATIONS

UN NVOVO TIPO DI COSTRUZIONE ADOTTATO PER LE STAZIONI NELLE FERROVIE SOTTERANEE

Details are given of the design and construction of a new type of underground station, built on the first Budapest underground line. The station (at Astoria) consists of twin tunnels or a combination of several tunnels with a supporting structure of top and bottom girders, in turn supported by concrete filled steel columns, spaced 4m apart. Since the station and the line tunnels are of the same diameter, the design ensures the continuous operation of the driving shield, without the need for dismantling and reassembly. The type of construction described will also be adopted for the Kossuth and Batthyony stations. /TRRL/
